Three Levels to Choose From:

  • Washed to EPA guidelines
  • Receive stringent quality control analysis by independant laboratories
  • Each box is bar-coded with the certificate number for full traceability
  • Containers are packed in case with security seal
  • Signed Certificat of Analysis listing analytes and detection levels

Precleaned

  • Washed to EPA guidelines
  • Containers are packed in case with security seal
  • Signed statement verifying cleaning procedure included in each case

Assembled

  • Capped according to customer requirements but are not precleaned



  Our programmable stainless steel industrial washers are equipped with injector racks to ensure each container receives a series of high pressure washes, acid and deionized water rinses.

  Our forced air stainless steel ovens bake the containers at more than 300 degrees Celsius to complete the process.

  Based on EPA protocols, ProClean containers are cleaned to the following exacting specifications:
